Singapore’s approach to math education is much different from curricula commonly taught in American schools. For this reason, teachers need a solid understanding of Singapore’s pedagogy to deliver instruction.

Since 2008, Math Champions’ Teacher-Trainers have helped thousands of teachers understand and effectively teach elementary mathematics. The Jumpstart Your Singapore Math® program is based on training methods refined over the past decade through our work with more than 130 schools and more than 200 seminars for educators.

This workshop is for current and potential users of:

  • Dimensions Math
  • Primary Math
  • Eureka/EngageNY

Jumpstart and COVID-19 (Updated March 26, 2020)

The Coronavirus pandemic has escalated significantly since we announced these workshops three weeks ago. We hope the crisis will soon pass and life will return to something more normal.

We know when that happens, teachers will want training for next school year. We will continue to evaluate the situation and provide updates here.  We will also notify those registered of any changes and offer a flexible refund policy.

Please stay safe in these uncertain times.
